Calls for book proposals

Culture Practices in Education

We are seeking short-form Emerald Points proposals that explore the connection between cultural practices and education, identifying research needs in areas of concern such as the management of multicultural education, multicultural approaches to pedagogy and how leaders can create a culturally responsive classroom environment.

Proposals might consider global Indigenous and decolonial perspectives, what a thriving decolonial educational system looks like and the educational leadership that is needed and required to get us there.

If you are interested in submitting a book proposal please contact Kirsty Woods
